One kilo beef = three hours driving while leaving the lights on at home

So says New Scientist. "Producing" a kilo of beef also produces about 36.4 kilos of CO2.

Bon appetit.

Easy solution: stop feeding corn to cattle who can't properly digest it. But that will increase pressure on public lands, like the USFS. What to do? As far as methane, I wonder if the tens of millions of buffalo produced as much methane as modern cows.
